Enhance the learning experience for all students in the public speaking classroom

This guidebook provides support for new and experienced instructors of public speaking courses whose classrooms include ESL and other linguistically diverse students. Based on landmark research and years of their own teaching experience, the authors provide insights about the variety of non-native English-speaking students (including speakers of global English varieties), practical techniques that can be used to help these students succeed in their assignments, and ideas for leveraging this cultural asset for the education of all students in the public speaking classroom.
